On Thursday, June 18th at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central, Plague League and the staff of HackersCurator.com along with Magic the Gathering content creator Joe Davidson will host a Watch Party for the 1995 cyberpunk movie Hackers.
Hackers stars Johnny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Matthew Lillard (now of Beadle & Grimms) with Fisher Stevens, Lorraine Bracco and magician Penn Gillette. Fisher Stevens’ character “The Plague” was the inspiration (or source of the blatant pillaging) of Plague League’s owner Paul “Plague” Miles, and an indirect inspiration for Plague League’s name.
Joe Davidson, who streams Magic the Gathering Arena (and will participate in next month’s Young Lion Classic) will join the watch party at the conclusion of his Thursday evening stream. HackersCurator is a one-stop shop for everything related to the film. They have spent years exploring not just the film, but the technology and even locations of the film.
The Watch Party will be hosted on the Plague League Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/theplagueleague). Joe Davidson will be joining our party fresh off his Thursday evening stream. So you can hang out in his chat before the movie starts and not miss anything.
